Summary
Three women struggle against overwhelming odds to find freedom in the summer of 1964, and all three find their own path to independence, understanding, and peace, despite the obstacles fate throws at them
Summary

But in Paige Dunn's small, ramshackle house, there are more immediate concerns. Challenged by the effects of the polio she contracted during her last month of pregnancy, Paige is nonetheless determined to live as normal a life as possible and to raise her daughter, Diana, in the way she sees fit--with the support of her tough-talking black caregiver, Peacie
